Miotran review

Miotran is a skeletal muscle relaxant used to treat different kinds of muscle spasms causing discomfort or unbearable pain to individuals. It works through the spinal cord by depressing the reflexes to prevent the spasms and blocks pain sensations being transmitted to the brain.

Miotran relaxes the muscles and helps relieve pain due to sprains, spasms, strains, arthritis and other muscle problems. This medication is typically combined with physical therapy and is distributed under the brand names Parafon Forte, Paraflex, Remular-S and Relaxazone.

This medication is taken orally 3 to 4 times a day, though the dosage depends on the patient's medical condition and their response to the medication. Dosage is typically reduced once the patient is responding to the treatment.

Take the medication after meals with a glass of water to avoid stomach upset. If you miss a dose, take it immediately; however, never take more than the prescribed dose at one time to compensate for the missed dose.

Symptoms of overdose include vomiting, wamble, headache and low blood pressure. If any of these symptoms occur, seek medical attention immediately.

Common side effects associated with Miotran include dizziness, upset stomach, constipation, heartburn and headache. This medication may also cause liver problems that result in pyrexia, unusual exhaustion, yellowing of skin and eyes. If any of these symptoms occur, it is important to seek immediate medical attention.

Prior to taking Miotran, tell your physician about your medical history, including allergies to medications, stomach problems, liver problems and other health disorders.

This medication causes dizziness and drowsiness so avoid any activity that requires normal alertness such as operating machines, driving and extreme sports.

Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages while taking this medication because it only increases the risk of side effects and hampers the effectiveness of the medication.

Pregnant women and nursing mothers should talk with their physician before taking the medication. Discuss the benefits of the medication and the risks, especially to the baby.

Also tell your physician about all other prescribed and non-prescribed medications you are taking, including those that cause drowsiness such as sleep pills, pain relievers, cough medicines and medications used to treat mental conditions.
